"The shows deal with universal themes and issues that kids are facing today," Wayans says. "We try to deal with them through humor. Then, at the end of each episode, we wrap it up with a little song about what it is that they just learned from that episode."
Wayans' lone foray into acting in a project outside the family came in the largely forgettable 1999 thriller New Blood.
Shawn Wayans and his wife Ursula have three children: two daughters, Laila and Illia, and a son, Marlon,
named after Shawn's younger brother.
Shawn Wayans and his remarkably talented siblings have created dozens of hit films. Still, the family's most impressive feat may not be their films' success, but rather the fact that they all still get along so well after working together for so long. It's something Shawn Wayans attributes to their upbringing and their insistence on putting fun and family first: "We love it. We make a family environment, it's fun, everybody knows what needs to be done," he says. "I think it has to do with how we were raised, to look out for one another."
